Dolphin Tank and Delta Demos
Education, Leadership | December 5, 2018

Tri Delta’s Collegiate Leadership Conference (CLC) 2019 will feature the second annual Innovation Showcase! The event is designed to highlight the creative successes of our collegiate chapters from across North America and provide an opportunity for chapters to offer ideas to enhance the Tri Delta member experience.

We are excited to announce that this year the Innovation Showcase will introduce two exciting new ways to share best practices, brainstorm new strategies and address challenges faced by college women.

Dolphin Tank
Dolphin Tank is a challenge to the entire Tri Delta membership to explore turning their ideas into an impactful endeavor designed to enhance the collegiate experience. Chapters officer teams are invited to share a structured pitch to a panel of judges comprised of Fraternity volunteers and offer ideas to enhance the Tri Delta membership experience. How would you engage with the Fraternity to address relevant issues, trends and changes in society which impact our collegiate members today? We can’t wait to hear your pitch and see who can swim in the Dolphin Tank!

Delta Demos
Delta Demos is a science-fair style event, providing chapters the opportunity to showcase examples of their current programming, operations, recruitment, public relations and marketing, and more. Does your chapter have a recruitment video they are proud of? We want to see it. Do you use GIN in an innovative way? We want you to teach other chapter officers about it. Does your chapter host a stand-out program for your members? We want you to tell us about it.

During this event, CLC attendees will move from table to table, exploring a wide range of relevant topics and learn from chapters who are addressing them in a unique way.

Who should apply?
All chapters are encouraged and invited to submit an application to participate in the Innovation Showcase in the Dolphin Tank or as a Delta Demo or both! Tri Delta is seeking chapters that have:

  • Revolutionized an aspect of chapter life
  • Addressed societal issues
  • Positively changed the lives of members
  • Impacted non-members in a meaningful way
  • Creatively addressed a challenge
  • Transformed the “basics” into something meaningful
  • Ventured into uncharted territory that would make Sarah Ida Shaw proud

How does my chapter apply?
Chapters are invited to apply for both components of Innovation Showcase. The events will occur simultaneously and if your chapter is selected for both Delta Demos and Dolphin Tank, the chapter is responsible for ensuring members are present at each event.

There is a separate application for each event so please ensure you submit them according to your chapter’s needs.

Submissions are due by January 27, 2019.

Frequently asked questions can be found on the CLC 2019 website.
